It’s great to be Irish all year round but St. Patrick’s Day is the one day of the year that we can really feel proud. For a small country, Ireland has really made its mark on the world. From our sporting achievements to our music legends to our talented actors and writers, with The Banshees of Inisherin picking up awards left, right and centre, there’s plenty to be proud of.
A glance at the calendar might tell you that summer has arrived – but really, you don’t need a calendar to know that much. Peeking outside the window, listening out for tell-tale noises, or even sniffing the air is enough to confirm it; the sights, sounds and smells all point towards the changing of the seasons.
WE FELL IN LOVE WITH IRELAND AND IRISH LIFESTYLE.

Irish Socksciety loves all that is quirky and humorous of contemporary Ireland.
they feel that feet have lots to say, and to help them talk, they design colourful and funny socks here, in Galway, on the west coast of Ireland, in the middle of the beautiful Wild Atlantic Way.
It’s that time of year again where we celebrate our little island, and raise a glass to St. Patrick. All around the world, festivities will kick off as descendants from the Emerald Isle (or just those who want to join in on the fun) honour the history and rich culture of Ireland. And for those heading to our shores to celebrate, the party is an even bigger affair.
Christmas shopping can be stressful and time-consuming. While some people have a knack for choosing the perfect gift, right down to the beautifully wrapped box with a ribbon on top, most of us could use a little help in that department. Luckily we’re here for you and we’ll help you choose the perfect gift for absolutely everyone.
When you think of Valentine’s Day, your mind might race towards blooming roses and boxes of chocolates; common choices to show your affection on the most romantic of all days. But when it comes to history and heritage, those pale in comparison to Irish design – which has been celebrating love for centuries.
A sure sign that Christmas time is coming to Ireland is when the Roses are in bloom – not the flowers, but the chocolates. We usually start to see signs of these in supermarkets in about mid-October, tucked not so discreetly in behind the Halloween displays in anticipation of the big reveal. It would be a grave mistake to purchase them at this time though, as they will surely be devoured within days. Still, we can always buy more.
